This three-hour plus tour took us to most major parts of the city. The Ninth Ward was especially interesting and we spent the most time there. Despite all of the "name-dropping" our guide felt he had to do as he narrated the sights, he provided us a good overview and showed a lot of pride in his city. The snack... More

We took this tour on May 17, after finding the Groupon deal. Our tour guide, Darren, was informative and humorous as he told us stories about the various areas of the city. We were only in the city for the weekend and without this tour, we would never have seen a fraction of the features we were able to view.... More

I really enjoyed this tour. Greg, our tour guide picked us up at our hotel in a small, air conditioned tour bus. I was glad we did this tour early in our visit (Monday) because it really helped us get a feel for NOLA. Greg had so much information he eagerly enjoyed sharing. He sprinkled it with comedy, laughter, and... More

We enjoyed this tour more than we thought we would. The bus was comfortable and made a couple of stops to get out and stretch. The guide was very interesting and had a lot of historical information. We were driven through areas that one would normally not get to see in a short trip. It also helped us decide which... More

Like most others, we really enjoyed this tour. Darren was very informative and as for us, we enjoyed the little musical bits that he played during his narrative. We enjoyed the City Park stop as well as the stop at Metarie Cemetery. We learned a lot about New Orleans and would recommend this tour to get the overall picture. For... More

This was an interesting tour as it took us through the parts of New Orleans still devastated by hurricane Catrina, as well as the more touristy areas. The bus was comfortable, not too large and well air conditioned. The driver was well informed and had a lot of great (maybe dubious) anecdotes. I would have rated the tour higher, but... More

We were picked up at our hotel as were all the participants. The tour itself started going through The French Quarter with very good descriptions of the various locations. I cannot remember all the places we visited but going past the Ninth Ward and seeing all the devastation was heartbreaking. Those houses were peoples homes, some have rebuilt but there... More

As another reviewer said, we also had Darren as a guide and we enjoyed the tour. For the most part you are sitting in the bus so make sure you get a window seat. I say it is a good introductory tour as if you see something you really like, you can go back another time. I would recommend the... More

We had Darren as a guide and we enjoyed the tour. No need for me to repeat what everyone else said. Look for a groupon to save money.

We had completed our fishing trip and were looking for something to do before heading to the airport. Chose a three hour mini bus tour with Southern Style Tours Very educational and informative with lots of laughs thrown in. Our driver was very knowledgeable, took time to explain how the levee and pumping system worked and how much of the... More
